Il Duca: Sandblasted Acorn (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0548
Max Rimensi's precise shaping skills are evident in this organic Acorn from Il Duca. Known for taking classic shapes and putting his own creative touches to them, often modernizing them in the process, he takes that approach with this sleek piece. The bowl is softly rounded beneath the rim and tapers gradually to a firm heel, forgoing the spur. It's set to a lengthy stretch of pencil-thin shank and tapered stem, the proportions between bowl and shank neoclassic. Max is known for the ease in which he blends a fusion of styles, with some Italian influences seen here. Dressed in a dark, reserved sandblast that shows off lovely grain below, this Acorn is topped by one of the artisan's handsome cumberland stems of moss green and black.-Angela Robertson
